Could not put it down.
I read all of them and really enjoyed them!
This is book 3 in the Wise Woman series. Viscount Middleton, Braden Tavers, must set out to London in search of his estate's healer and his brother. His healer, Tia Featherstone, went to London in search for his brother to make sure that we all was well with him. Braden tracks down Tia and brings her back to his home. He lets her know that he will be sending her home to the estate, but Mia is determined to stay and find the Viscount's brother. Meeting a new friend, Mia moves in with her and away from the Viscount's watchful eye. A month passes and Braden finds Mia at a ball. Making a spectacle of both of them, Braden carries Mia out and the ball to his awaiting carriage. They soon agree to work together to find Braden's brother, but as they spend more and more time together they can't seem to fight the attraction they feel for each other. Can the Viscount make an honorable proposition to his estate's healer and if not, can Mia accept only that? I did enjoy this story and found it written better than Enticing the Earl. I always enjoy a good mystery with my romance stories and Kelley didn't disappoint. The mystery was one I hadn't read before and thoroughly enjoyed it. I enjoyed seeing the characters from the previous stories and catching up with them. Thanks go to Kensington via NetGalley for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.
An enjoyable read, filled with sweet romance, twists, and a surprising betrayal, Vexing the Viscount was a wonderful historical romance. I really liked this book. It was a lovely addition to a fantastic series. Tia was a great heroine. She was strong, clever, and determined not to let anyone rule over her. My only issue was that, when things got emotionally messy, she had a tendency to run away. Otherwise, she was a lovely character and I really liked her. Braden was wonderful. He came off as cold, but it quickly became clear that there was much more to him. He was very loyal and protective of his loved ones and sweet when he wanted to be. I thought he was utterly adorable. The romance was great. Tia and Braden were a sweet couple. Though it doesn't seem like it on the surface, the two strong willed characters were perfectly matched. And the certainly had enough chemistry to turn the heat level up. My only issue was that I didn't like the inclusion of Tia's previous infatuation with Johnathon. It was only there for a few chapters and it didn't really serve a purpose (maybe giving her a reason to follow him to London, but she could have simply wanted to ensure his health), so I wondered why it was even there. But, focusing on Tia and Braden's relationship, I thought they were a lovely couple. The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. There were a few surprises along the way, not the least of which was why Johnathon ran away and who was behind all the chaos. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely. Vexing the Viscount was a wonderful historical romance. I really liked this fantastic book. From the romance, to the twists and the enjoyable story, it was a truly lovely read. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out. *I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
